Are you using digital technology to help individuals, communities or governments in Asia adapt to shocks and chronic stresses? If so, we want to hear from you. FHI 360 is working with the Rockefeller Foundation, in association with the Global Resilience Partnership, to identify potential digital technology innovations that may have a positive impact on resilience outcomes in Asia.
We’re interested in the whole range of digital technologies, from mobile-based communications, to sensor technologies, gaming, big data applications, and beyond. If you are involved with the deployment of any digital technology innovation that is already or has the potential to enable individuals, communities or systems to survive, adapt, grow, and transform in the face of shocks and stresses, then please complete this brief form.
We will be compiling submissions into an inventory of innovations that we will publish and share with the wider development community as a quick and easy reference. Outstanding innovations may also be invited to participate at a two-day public convening on innovation and resilience to be held in Bangkok, Thailand later this year. In addition, up to five innovations may also receive targeted technical (and potentially financial) support to scale their innovations.
Please submit your work via this survey form before March 24, 2017.
If you have any questions, please contact Josh Woodard at [email protected].
